candidate of real change, barack obama has kind of gone, no, not so fast, that is not mitt romney and he's trying to frame himself as someone that voters know and that they can trust and that mitt romney is not. he's all but called mitt romney a liar, and in recent days, i was at one ohio rally where his supporters were actually yelling liar. so he hasn't said that outright, but he's been accusing mitt romney of being dishonest and kind of packaging something that really isn't there. he's focused obviously here in florida today, but when you look at all the places president obama is going to in these last few days before the election, this is the only visit to florida. he'll be spending a lot of his time in ohio for sure, but also in wisconsin and iowa, focusing more on that mid western firewall. because although florida is important and has a lot of electoral votes, the obama campaign sees ohio as essential, and if they can keep it in president obama's column, that's keeping it out of the hands of mitt romney, fred. >> the rival in florida has seen the new legal battle over early voting.

florida. mitt romney also having to change his itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations

said president obama he believes in climate change and mitt romney doesn't. he also attacked mitt romney for where i believe the vulnerability is the endless flip-flopping. it's not a good thing that he endorses a former republican mayor, somebody totally influential, endorses a democratic president. >> he's been a republican and democrat and an independent. so i guess he has the luxury of endorsing anyone. i thought it was an unnecessary endorsement. i don't say that because he endorsed president obama. he has an entire paragraph in there taking obama on for you'll of his failures. you haven't done anything for deficit reduction, for balancing the budget, for jobs creation. those are the issues that most voters say are determines their choice in this election and then, of course, he said it was about climate change and global warming but at the end he had the usual litany of marriage and abortion. also, it was all over the map and i just thought it was an ill-timed unnecessary endorsement when his city is suffering. >> five days before the general election. he's allowed to endors

governor romney is selling ain't it. it's definitely not change. ruling out compromise by pledging the rubber stamp, the tea party folks in congress, that's not change. >> changing the facts that aren't convenient to your campaign, that's not change. that's old. that's the washington that needs to change. now, virginia, after four years as president, you know me. you know me. so, so, when you're trying to sort through this argument about change, you know, part of what you have to ask yourself is who do you trust? you know, when you're talking about the economy and policy that's so critical, you've got to trust. michelle doesn't agree with every decision i've made. there may be times when you're frustrated at the pace of change. i am frustrated sometimes with the pace of change. but you know i mean what i say. and i say what i mean. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. when i said we'd end the war in iraq, we ended it. when i said we'd pass health departmentcare reform, we passed it. when i said we'd repeal don't ask, don't tell, we repealed it. you know i tell the truth. an

campaign trail, the president wasted no time confronting mitt romney's twists on bringing change to washington. >> he's saying that is the big change. well let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. what the governor is offering, sure ain't change. >> reporter: he easily won wisconsin. this year the race is much tighter. it is now an all-out sprint to election day. they concentrated on virginia on thursday. toning down the speeches after sandy hit. but he was on the attack again at a rally in the suburbs. this is an election where, you know, i think that we're not going to just shape the country for four years, but for a generation. >> reporter: romney returned to another criticism of the president at a window and door factory. >> they are making products for america. and they and their family and all the people that work here. that they did build this. >> reporter: the recent polls will have them up by just two points virginia. and nationally the race is a virtual tie. danielle noddingham, cbs news, the white house. >> today, the new york city mayor in the thick of

make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. basically things are on the upswing in ohio. and to keep it going, you need to change leadership in washington. that's a strange message. it's true if you look at the numbers in ohio and to an extent in wisconsin. if you look nationally at where obama has been bleeding support, not as much in ohio. not nearly as dramatic. you can definitely link that to the economy there, to the bailout there, and i can think it's a small example, the 1988 election. a sea of red on the electoral map. bush won coast to coast. there were three states in the upper midwest that went democratic. iowa, minnesota and wisconsin. it was because the farm economy had collapsed in the '80s. the economy was so much worse there that they wanted to take it out on the reagan administration so they turned on bush. so i see there's a potential there for kind of a flip of that. if the economy is strong, i could see it would explain why obama is doing better in ohio than nation

life changing moment. >> mitt romney is driving. they are coming around a curve in this small remote town. there are six people in the car. >> he went around the bend and he saw that there was a, at a high rate of speed, another person coming right towards him. >> one of the policemen who had shown up as the first responder, if you will, had actually written in his passport 'il est mort,' which means 'he is dead.' >> mitt woke up in a ward, and he didn't know where he was. and then for a period of time, he didn't have any feeling in one side of his face. >> he had survived, but the wife of the mission president, sitting right next to him, was killed. >> you have to understand the mission president was like the surrogate father there. his wife, the surrogate mother, the mission mother. and she was to many of us mother there. and so it was an awful loss for us that she was killed. >> in the wake of the tragedy mitt's friends say he showed surprising resilience. >> i think part of that is because of our faith. a deep conviction that this isn't the end of all life; it's just the end of m

presidency. politically ambition, we have hope and change to divide and conquer. we have romney who only message, i wanted to get elected at any cost and i'm not obama. let me tell you something. where we are headed after november, if obama is elected, after the campaign, the republicans will keep the house or cooperate is foolhardy. and he faces what happened watergate, iran contra, by running the clock out and all the scandals and everything else -- libya, excuse me -- all of that will come back to bite him because that cover-up could undo his presidency in terms of effectiveness. i don't me whether he would be impeached. >> megyn: what if president obama wins on tuesday night and these republicans in the house are not any more likely to work across the aisle. i don't know whether he is any more to work across the aisle. he says he will be. are we looking at lame duck presidency from day one? >> we are looking at two things. a lame duck presidency, divided and polarized, political culture in washington. the other thing is the potential of literally going over the fiscal cliff. i know t

tuesday, it may be much less important because it could be that mitt romney could win tuesday and lose the election. >> right. jacob is right. i wrote a reuters piece talking about how in many places early voting has completely changed election day. he's right in speaking to the reform agenda which is there is all these other places and it goes back to what dorian was saying. i went to law school. this is a national election. we should have uniform equal protection, national access and it should be greater than election day. >> so it seems that there a sports analogy here. in the ncaa, you play one game and if you win, then you go on and if you lose -- but this is like the playoffs. you have to keep seeing over a course of several days who ultimately can get and sustain the greatest amount of support. let me ask you this, though. what happens in terms of public support for moving to early voting? when we look at all the states that now have level of early voting, what was the strategy that it took to get that and can the virginias and new yorks and other states manage to move towa

more pathways to 270 than governor romney. that is still true and nothing has changed. >> senator? >> that is exactly right. governor romney because of electoral college of about 30 electoral voters has to win the majority. key element to look at is voter intensity. republicans and conservatives so intent on voting they make some of the models of the polls is inaccurate and he carries other states by a very narrow margin. that is the key thing to look at. >> megyn: thank you so much for your expertise. we appreciate it. coming up, new polls in the state of virginia! when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.
